We found this cool and peaceful haven for lunch today (a very hot day!) after exploring the Castle, Church and antiquities of beautiful Mértola. As soon as you walk in you know the place is special, almost like walking into someone's home. Although there is a bright and sunny terrace with lovely views overlooking the River, we chose to sit...

The waitress was really friendly and accommodating, there's a seating upstairs with a nice view over the river. We decided to try Terra Utopica for dinner after reading raving reviews on Tripadvisor. What a mistake!! We ordered a salad as a starter (was nice, but small and overpriced), followed by pasta mains. The amount of pasta served was very generous... More

We wanted a light early evening meal and were not disappointed. Given the cold weather we ate inside, nice room with tables well spread out. The service was excellent and the food good if not spectacular. My chicken with cheese sauce was very good and the bruschetta with tomatoes and the tomato and mozzarella salad were both good if nit... More

Last night we had a nice dining experience in this restaurant. We were sitting on the roofterrace with its truely magnificent view on the town, Guadiana river and Alem-Rio. The service was excellent, the bruschetta delicious and the costeletos well prepared and very tastefull. The HDL tinto wine was a surprisingly positive experience. Don't forget to go to this restaurant... More

This is a repeat visit the last one being some 6 weeks ago. My wife and I both had chicken breast with a cheese based green sauce (Rocket leaves giving it the colour), the sauce was delicate, delicious and plentiful which is uncommon in our experience when 'eating out', most chefs seem to ration their quantities from carefully placed droplets...

We were a lunchtime party of 3, this was not our first visit, my wife and I make a point of bringing friends and relatives to the restaurant on their respective visits to the Algarve.. We have always experienced a charming reception, excellent service and exquisitely prepared food chosen from an eclectic menu and long may it continue. An old... More

The only way I can understand the very good reviews about this place is that they have more than one staff and more than one cook. The location of this restaurant is one of the best you can think about, but inside is does not match expectations. When we arrived we (a small group that included a baby) were told... More
